Subject: Pity There Is No Sound
Very interesting, but short, series of video clips of nurses after being returned to civilization from captivity during WWII in the Pacific. It's a pity that there is no sound to go with these clips - hearing what these brave women had to say about their experiences and their return to civilization would have been even more informative and interesting. Great though that it was done in color, and fairly good quality clips. I enjoyed watching the pieces, and wondered about their thoughts and feelings of being returned to the "real world" after their war experiences.
